Crazy Cat lady is how friends and family describe me and I totally embrace it! Hi Im Kirsten Coles, Im a born and raised Southlander but have lived in Blenheim for the last 20 years. I have always had a cat in the house from as long as I remember. I come from a reception background working in hotels and then taking a complete career change qualifying as a Pharmacy Technician which i have worked at for the last 8 years. I decided I wanted to pursue my love of animals taking a Vet Assistant course online and I finally have my dream job come to life working at Springlands Vet Centre. I live in Springlands with my partner and between us we have 4 kids, 1 dog, 2 cats, 3 rabbits and a fish. Unfortunately being in town on a busy road we cannot have any more cats, but working here I get to foster kittens for their forever homes. Eventually we would love to own a lifestyle block so we can have plenty more animals (maybe a cattery) You will find me on the weekends on the sidelines of our kids sports games or walking our dog along the Taylor River.
